Disney+ is not playing games when it comes to delivering the proverbial goods with the still growing streaming service which has so far really only presented “The Mandalorian” for the Star Wars geeks. Oh and before you take that as a slight, I am a lifer when it comes to Star Wars so moving right along. The debut Marvel Studios series will be “WandaVision” which will premiere in January and then it will be followed by “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” and “Loki”. Are you drooling yet? Today’s narrative is to share the Exclusive Look at the first animated series being presented by the service in “What If”. Let’s take a look. I’ve added the premise and healthy voice cast as well. Enjoy.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Speaking for me, I’ve always enjoyed a good animated series and some of my favorites growing up were “GI Joe”, “Transformers”, Thundarr”, “Masters Of The Universe” and the host of Hanna Barbera superheroes to name a few. Oh yeah, I did love the “X-Men” and “Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends” too but I will stop there as I know I can add another dozen I liked for sure. This looks like it will be an interesting and compelling experience since it will take the outcomes of the MCU Films and rewire them. I loved the original comic series and believe that I have a complete set of the first run in one of the long boxes somewhere and truth be told there were some great tales woven in those pages. I am excited for this series and we still have a long way to go before it comes to the service. If it works we might get more animated features which I am totally up for. That’s all I have for now, please let me know what you think about this trailer down below in the comments and I will see you again soon.
